Local hair salon to continue coronavirus safety measures
By Sophie Ladd | 15th July 2021
Gloucestershire based hair salon Mark Blake is asking its customers to continue wearing masks from Monday, despite law changing and it no longer being compulsory indoors.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday July 14th, the hairdressers said:
"In light of the guidelines that will come into effect from Monday 19th July 2021, we have decided to continue to follow a number of measures for the safety of both our team and our clients in all our salons.
"We will continue with the current precautions in all of our salons, such as safety screens, salon sanitisation and social distancing where possible. Our staff will continue to wear masks and we would actively encourage all of our clients to continue to wear masks when visiting us."
Other national companies such as Waterstones and Sainsburys, as well as local companies like Great Western Railway and Stagecoach are also appealing to customers to wear masks if they can in busy and confined spaces.
Punchline reader Jackie Smith said: "I'm much more likely to shop in places that want their customers to wear masks. And unlikely to go into places where there are lots of people without."
Punchline reader Iona said: "I will be continuing to wear my mask. I'm double vaccinated but I work with people who haven't or can't have the vaccination. It's a simple thing for me to choose to wear a mask after Monday."
Forest Deli, a cafe in Coleford said: "We won't be enforcing mask wearing, but will be asking customers to wear masks as not all working here are fully vaccinated yet."
Gooch Sports in Newent and Lumiere in Cheltenham echoed Forest Deli's sentiments. They too will be asking customers to wear a mask if they can.
Many customers have already said they will continue wearing masks.
